User Description: I caught and released this giant striper, my new personal best, with my good friend Dan Dougherty while fishing the Susquehanna Flats area of the Chesapeake Bay in early April. We ended the day with about 25 stripers and three 5+lb. largemouths, on light tackle in shallow water. (Tagged "saltwater" because it's a tidal area)

User Description: Opening day of the 2013 turkey season (youth day). My son shot this bird with his youth model Mossberg 500 20guage at about 12 yards. The bird had a 5in beard and needless to say he was pretty excited. However, it is debatable who was more excited as any father who has had this privilege can attest to!
